Ali: "When America was Europeanized, one remarkable thing was the
continent was so rich that any industrious person who wanted to could
become quite well off.
They were, at one point. Unfortunately, after being isolated from the
cradle of humanity, and therefore the parasites that fed off of
humanity, for a few thousand years, they were effectively "bubble boys".
When they made contact with Europeans and Africans (which would have
happened eventually, and the same would have happened if they had made
contact with Asians), the diseases that were transmitted to them wiped
them out. By the time the Europeans started making real inroads into
North America, they were meeting a post apocalyptic society.
If that theory made any sense, the Indians would all have been rich.
Consider, for example, the Plains Indians. They were a nomadic culture,
traveling on horseback. Except: Horses didn't exist in North America
until AFTER the Europeans came. Which means that the Plains Indians
didn't exist until after the Europeans came. Essentially, they were
formed by remnants of civilized (in the anthropological sense) groups,
who had been wiped out by disease to the point where their societies
could not function.
